BRISTOL - St. Paul girls soccer’s Kendall Davis broke Helena Periera’s Falcons school record for career goals in impressive fashion, scoring four goals to lead St. Paul to a 11-0 victory on the road Monday in Derby.

It was Davis’s fourth multi-goal game of the season for the Falcons and her third in a row since recovering from the leg bruise that limited her.

Along with Davis, Briana Senese and Addison Davis each had a pair of goals.

Isabella Griffin, Delaney Jordan and Hannah Stanford also scored for St. Paul. It was the first goal of the season for each of them.

Defensively, the Falcons were solid, only allowing three shots for the Red Raiders and keeper Nina Zwolinski made three saves for St. Paul.

The Falcons put 33 shots on Derby keeper Riley Miller who finished with 16 saves.

With the win, St. Paul moves to 7-2-3 on the season and will host Hadden Killingworth on Friday.

Bristol Eastern 2, Maloney 1: Coming into the second half tied 1-1 with the Spartans, the Lancers needed somebody to step up and Kailey Laprise did just that scoring the deciding goal in the 70th minute.

Shots on goal were big for the Lancers as keeper Karly Martin faced just two shots in the game. Bristol Eastern had 14 shots as a team.

The Lancers will travel to Middletown tomorrow and are now an even .500 at 6-6 with the win.

Bristol Central 2, Platt 1: Adalia Malick made sure that the Rams came out with a victory against the Panthers as she scored both of the Bristol Central goals.

Zoe Sinclair, Abby Gorneault, Ashley Macdonald and Selena Norton all had impressive offensive showings as well and the Rams dominated possession throughout the game with 18 shots including 11 corner kicks.

On defense, Faith Roy and Sarah Guerin made sure that Maloney didn’t have many goal opportunities.

Bristol Central will host Maloney tomorrow and moved to 4-7 with the win.

BOYS SOCCER

Bristol Central 2, Platt 1: David Bowes had a big game for the Rams with a pair of goals in the first half and Bristol Central’s 2-1 lead at the half held up the rest of the way.

Offensively the Rams had 23 shots and just capitalizing on two of those was disappointing according to Bristol Central head coach Nate Jandreau.

While the 2-1 win could have been bigger, starting the three-game week off with a win is important for the Rams.

Bristol Central will host Middletown on Wednesday and advance to 7-4-1 on the season.

BOYS CROSS COUNTRY

Terryville 16, Thomaston 45: The Kangaroos had a strong day racing and with four of the top five finishers they went onto beat the Golden Bears.

Corey Picard and Chris Deforest paced the way throughout for Terryville. Picard (17:50) finished in first place just a couple seconds ahead of Deforest (17:52).

Behind them were Colby Brown (18:20) and Connor Garrity (18:46) in third and fourth place.

With the win, the Kangaroos advanced to 10-1 on the year and have the Berkshire League Championship coming up this Friday.

GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY

Thomaston 15, Terryville 47: The Kangaroos girls continued to struggle this year with just two runners placing in the top 10 against the Golden Bears.

Jordan Conklin (24:28) and Sarah Evanoski (25:25) finished in the top 10, Conklin placed sixth while Evanoski was eighth.

With the loss, Terryville falls to 3-7 and will look for its fourth win next Monday against Bristol Eastern.

GIRLS VOLLEYBALL

Bristol Central 3, Manchester 0: Facing the winless Indians at home, the Rams were in a good spot to get their 11th win of the season and they did just that sweeping three sets 25-10, 25-14 and 25-10.

Xia’ian Carrasco (eight kills), Brianna Saverino (seven kills), Kathryn Ross (five aces) and Peyton Greger (eight aces) led the way for Bristol Central in the win.

The Rams advanced to 11-5 on the season with the win and will host Middletown on Wednesday.

RHAM 3, Bristol Eastern 0: The Lancers knew it wouldn’t be an easy match against the undefeated Sachems.

Bristol Eastern couldn’t find its rhythm, getting swept 25-11, 25-12 and 25-9.

For RHAM, Alana Hruksa (22 kills) and Allie Welch (38 assists) proved too much for the Lancers.

With the loss, Bristol Eastern falls to 8-6 on the season while the Sachems advance to 14-0. The Lancers will travel to face Platt on Wednesday.
